40 Cute Things to Text Your Boyfriend

By on January 8, 2014

Absolutely love texting your boyfriend, but running out of cute texts that will make him smile? You’re not alone. After texting the same person for several months, finding things to make them smile can be a little difficult. But with these 40 cute things to text your boyfriend will surely make him laugh and smile.


1. Hey there handsome.

So much better than simply reading ‘Hi’ or ‘Hey’. Make him smile with the very first text you send. It can only get better!

2. I miss your cute smile.

Who doesn’t love a compliment on their appearance? Men love compliments, and this one will definitely make him smile with that cute little grin you know and love.

3. I love you.

This one should obviously be reserved for more serious relationships, but once he reads this he will definitely get butterflies in his belly.

4. You are so handsome.

Again, every man loves to be complimented. You can use other words like hot or sexy, but hearing he’s handsome will definitely up his ego in a more meaningful way.

5. I love your ____.

Really you can say just about anything with this text. Maybe you love his gorgeous green eyes, maybe you love his hilarious personality, or maybe are head over heels for his long blonde hair. Whatever it is that drives you crazy, let him know with this text. It’ll boost his ego and keep him happy for days on end.

6. I love it when you ____.

Tell your boyfriend some things you love that he does, like picking you up and hugging you or bringing you flowers before your date. This will not only make him feel good about himself, but will also let him know that he should continue doing it- and more often, too! It’s a win for the both of you.

7. I love you like a fat kid loves cake.

Such a classic line, but it gets a smile every time. I mean, the image is priceless yet it has a lot more meaning than you’d think. It’s really just an adorable text that will make him laugh the second he reads it, while still making his heart melt. Who knew you had such amazing powers?

8. So, there’s this really amazing guy. I like him a lot. His name is (insert boyfriend’s name here).

At first he’ll think, ‘Who is she talking about?’ Then he’ll be greatly surprised (and happy!) when he sees his name. Such a cute way to shower your man with compliments!

9. I was having a bad day, but then I thought of you and suddenly my world lit up.

It might be corny, but it’s definitely one to use on bad days when the only thing that makes you smile is him.

10. <3 

Ah, the heart symbol. So tiny, yet has such an impact. It’s a way of telling him you love him without words.



11. Guess what? (What?) I love you!

Yeah, you didn’t really have a surprise. You just wanted a clever way to tell him you love him! Who wouldn’t smile at that?

12. I wish you were here right now.

Everybody wants to feel wanted, and your man will love knowing that you wish he was next to you.

13. I can’t imagine life without you.

Another great text idea to really show him how much you care about him and want to be with him.

14. Words can’t describe how much I love you.

Another cute text idea for those in serious relationships. It must be pretty deep if words can’t even describe it!

15. I’d do anything to make you smile.

This is a great text to show your man how much you care about him and just want him to be happy!

16. You know I really want you to come over. But you’re so hot my air condition bill would sky-rocket the second you stepped foot in the door!

Oh, it’s so unbelievably cheesy. But yet, at the same time it’s so funny and adorable! He will love this text- guaranteed.


17. You’re my drug and I’m addicted to you!

There’s really no question why this text would run over well with your guy.

18. You make my heart race. 

He must be pretty great to make your heart race. Why not tell him?

19. You’re sweet like candy.

This is such a better option then just saying, ‘Oh you’re so sweet’, which he’s probably heard 100 times already.

20. I hope you know CPR, ‘cause you just took my breath away!

Here’s another corny text, but boy does it bring out the biggest smiles.


21. You’re the cheese to my macaroni. 

What’s macaroni without cheese? Nothing!

22. You looked great in that muscle tee.

This is a great way to let him know you were checking out his body, and you liked what you saw.

23. Can’t wait to see you again.

This adorable text will have him smiling and eager to come see you.

24. I feel so safe with your arms around me.

A compliment about your boyfriend’s strong, masculine arms? Yeah, there’s just no way you can go wrong with that.

25. You understand me so well. I can tell you anything.

Your man wants to know that you’re completely comfortable with him, so he’ll obviously love reading this text from you.

26. My friends are so jealous that I have you.

Letting your guy know you love him is great. But telling him that even your friends are  jealous boosts his ego that much higher. And as an added bonus, he’ll probably flaunt you even more in front of your gal pals.

27. You’re the man of my dreams.

Basically letting your guy know he competes with unreal characters of your dreams- yeah, it’s a weird concept- but one he will love to hear.

28. I don’t know how you put up with me.

There’s probably a few times where your man’s gotten irritated by you (maybe you’re cranky, goofy, sarcastic, etc), but this text will definitely make him smile and lighten his tension. There’s no doubt he’ll find this text cute AND funny.

29. You make me feel like a princess.

This is, after all, every guy’s mission: to make his lady feel like the princess she really is. This text is just reassurance that he is doing his job right and will definitely make him feel secure and happy.

30. I’m stealing your shirt next time I see you.

This adorable text lets your man know that you want a little piece of him to take home and snuggle with when he’s away. (Plus you get a brand new comfy pajama shirt). Win-win situation!



31. You’re so great at everything. Is there anything you can’t do?

Making your man feel like he’s the most masculine superhero on the planet is obviously a great idea. He will seriously love this text and is something you need to send him ASAP!

32. I had such a great time on our last date.

This is a wonderful text soon after a great date between the two of you. If your gigantic smiles during the entire date wasn’t enough to make it obvious, this text will seal the deal and make sure your man knows it was a great night.

33. I love watching you work out.

Again, there is no way you can go wrong complimenting your man’s physique. He will feel like a muscular stud and, of course, that’s something you want to do.

34. I want to know more about you. You’re so interesting!

There’s nothing like wondering whether or not you’re another boring fling. This text will make your guy know he is totally interesting and you can’t wait to find out more about him. Way to boost his ego, girl!

35. You are so unbelievably sweet and caring.

Usually guys want to hear that they are the hottest, most muscular man on the planet. But even so, they still like to hear that they are sweet from time to time. This cute text will let him know he’s more than just eye candy.

36. I love how ambitious you are.

Every woman loves a man with his eye on the prize. A hard-working man is just simply what every woman wants. This text will not only make him grin and feel like a million bucks, but will also boost his ambitious attitude and help him work harder at his job.

37. You always know just what to say to make smile.

It’s your man’s duty to keep a smile on your face. This text is not only really cute, but will let him know that he is doing a wonderful job as your boyfriend and to keep doing what he’s doing- it’s obviously working!

38. I don’t know what I would do without you.

This text basically tells your man that you need him in your life, that he completes you. This is obviously a great text to give your man some security and let him know just how important he is.

39. You’re so strong. I feel so protected around you.

Again, you can’t go wrong with complimenting your man’s strength. And as every man’s goal is to protect his woman from the danger’s of this world, there’s no way he won’t adore this text. Definitely one to send to your boyfriend as soon as you can.

40. You’re so cute when you ____.

Does your boyfriend do something really cute that just makes you giggle the second he does it? Why not tell him! This cute text will make him a little embarrassed, but definitely in a good way. Let your man know even the silly things he does makes you smile!

    Ive been dating my boyfriend for 6 months but sometimes I feel like he doesn’t feel the same as me. He calls me baby girl and says he loves me but he doesn’t send all the cheesy romantic stuff that I would love to hear. Is this something to worry about?

      Each person shares there feelings in a different way. He doesn’t communicate like you do, but this doesn’t mean that he doesn’t love you. Speak with him about your thoughts and feelings. Nourish your connection by spending additional time together in person. This will help him better understand how you would like to be treated.

      Try going somewhere new like on a new hike or to see an interesting movie. You could also try going out with a group of friends. If you try to experience something new together, it will give you something new to talk about automatically and also be a way to build your relationship. Good luck!

        I met this guy but he’s honestly way out of my league. He’s always sweet to me and he’s just so cute I can’t stand it. He’s not the kind of guy to be rude, arrogant or self obsorbed. But the thing is..I always feel like I’m not good enough. He tells me he loves me and I’m perfect for him but I know he can do better. I try to act like I don’t think this anymore because the last time I told him it made him sad…and that’s the last thing I want.
        Any advice?

          Interestingly, researchers have found that one of the common traits in successful relationships is a sense of exceptionalism–for example, that the other person is more amazing than anyone else or the relationship is more exceptional than anyone else’s relationship. When you like someone a lot, your feelings are totally normal. Don’t worry so much about whether you deserve him–whatever it is he wants in a spouse, he has found in you.

        You became pregnant without your knowledge, so it is certain that this has impacted his thoughts regarding the pregnancy.

      His statements are indications that he is an abusive partner. Determine what you want for your future without him, and inform him that you are ending the relationship.

      Either they are close friends or he hasn’t really moved on from the past relationship. It is also possible that he just has a lot of close friendships with girls. Whatever the reason is, you have to decide if you are comfortable with it or not.

      Take this opportunity to make a decision about what you feel is appropriate. You are focusing on your education, so be certain to not allow your relationship to undermine your schooling. If he is still dating someone, then you should not nourish the relationship. If he is single and you feel that you can manage this relationship, then speak with him about your thoughts and feelings. Strengthen your connection by spending additional time together in person.

      It is clear that the two of you share a strong connection. He has made you feel safe and secure, which is important to the success of your relationship. Make a decision about how you can best nourish your connection. Speak with him about your thoughts and feelings, and give him an opportunity to share himself with you as well. Nourish your connection by spending additional time together in person.

      If he likes you a lot, he is probably so concerned about looking dumb in his texts that he won’t notice if you say something awkward. Just try asking him about what he likes to do, how he spends his time or his goals in life.

    Remove the boyfriend part from your thought process.
    You have known him less than a year and look how you feel for him.
    She was with him 9 years.
    Imagine the love these two people had. The guilt of the relationship ending, the memories… he has A LOT to process and it probably hurts pretty bad.
    So just talk to him like a person who is in pain over a loss.
    He will appreciate that. He will love it. And you. Please just forget the relationship part for now until hes ready to focus on that…. Be a good friend to him. He needs that.
    ❤🙏 you’ll grow together if you can do this for him

      Your parents have informed you that the relationship is no longer viable. They have taken your car from you, as they do not trust you. The two of you are no longer dating, as it has been six weeks since you last saw each other. Determine what you want for your future without him, and learn from this experience. When you are no longer living with your parents, you can maintain whatever relationship that you want to.

      Some people are just moody. Attitude and perspective are up to the individual. He can decide to be happy and look on the bright side, but there is nothing you can do to make him happier. When he is in a bad mood, just leave him alone and come back after he has had some time to unwind.

    Me and my boyfriend have been seeing/ known each other for about 8 months now. His ex girlfriend of 9 years, they broke up a year ago, just died unexpectedly in a car accident a few weeks ago. He has been distraught and confessing all kinds of feelings he had for her. He also has now been spending a lot of time with her family and friends. I need advice because I dont know how I should handle this situation, I am trying to be there for him but at the same time it makes me question his actual feelings for me and if his love is still with me. It is just an awkward situation to be in because I don’t know what to say to him, being that I am his girlfriend and this is about his ex.

      This person has died, so he is taking this time to share his feelings. There is no reason to be jealous, as she has passed. Support him at this time. If you find that he dwells on her for an unreasonable amount of time, then speak with him about your thoughts and feelings then. For now, simply support him as he has lost someone that he once cared deeply for. Have a great day, Brielle!

      He obviously loved her if they were together for 9 years. If you were his ex and you died like her, he would feel the same way. It’s just a natural feeling. Just tell him how you feel and he will understand. The same thing happened to me, and he understood, but was still grieving. Don’t worry about it. Everybody takes time like that when somebody who is/was important dies. I hope this helps <3

      The grieving process is the indivisual journey. Empathy is required, but be mindful that we all grieve differently. Without knowing of your faith and belief background; praying for strength to hug him where no word spoken from others are able to reach the unspoken pain is vital. True love is so deep, precious, and delicate. Attending the opera, theatrical performances, dancing, fine dining, walking during the beautiful sunset is refreshing. Equally, attending comedy movie to laugh, and holding his hand may help.
